For all you guitar lovers out there, Pantheon Guitars has recently announced a new model. The Bourgeois BK Slope D features premium bearclaw Sitka spruce top, figured mahogany back and sides, brazilian rosewood headstock, fretboard, bridge and bridge plate, and Adirondack spruce bracing. Additional features include ivoroid binding, snakehead headstock, 1 23/32″ nut width, ebony bridge pins, Nickel/Ivoroid Waverly tuners and a natural finish.
The first 30 guitars will be signed and numbered by Bryan Sutton and Dana Bourgeois.
Dana Bourgeois says:
The BK Slope D has a deep, broad tone. Through wood selection and voicing, we push it in the direction of a bigger bottom end, a “lush” top end, and greater volume, similar to the characteristics of Bryan’s original BK. When I first started making slope shouldered Dreadnoughts, I went for something as different as possible from the balanced and focused sound of my standard Dreadnought. The Banjo Killer gets me back to that original idea.
Bryan Sutton says:
From the first time I played the Slope-D Bourgeois that would come to be known as the “Banjo Killer”, I was amazed at the range of tone and volume the guitar could produce. The guitar always seems to be to able to handle any dynamic level of play. I can hear the guitar clearly in a loud jam session without feeling like I have to overplay and also enjoy a full and sustained tone when I want to play softly. Dana has recaptured that magic with the new BK model.
List price for the new BK Slope D is $4195.
